Q.

I need discount conveyancing. What do we need to consider?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs will be included in the terms of engagement. The quote should list any disbursements. Fees should be fair.

Q.

How can we find out whether a house is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas classify streets and neighbourhoods defined as being of architectural merit. A solicitor will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal do the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Ormesby?

A.

Our company is very capable working with bidders at auction. Very often unusual properties for example landlocked or without legal access are sold at auction and these will want extended review. Conveyancers therefore advise purchasers to formally instruct a local lawyer well before the property auction to give enough time for a full review.

Subsequently, following the date of the auction a property lawyer needs to be focused on quickly finalise the legal side of things in under the 28 day time frame as typically required by the terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

When in the process is it wise to arrange a conveyancing solicitor to handle our transaction?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, as soon as possible, as the legal work can commence straight away. Some groups recommend postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Is a house survey advisable when purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

We strongly advise that all buyers in Ormesby instruct a property surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of issues which affect a property, including cracked roof tiles and cavity wall tie failure.

Q.

We are planning to buy a 1950's property. Should we have 'conveyancing searches' ordered?

A.

Searches are a standardised collection of queries ordered by the conveyancing solicitor. Buyers in Ormesby should consider that, conveyancing searches consider legal facets of the purchase.

Q.

What are the issues if purchasing a period home in a Redcar and Cleveland local authority conservation area ?

A.

Part of conveyancing involves ordering of LLC1 searches of the local authority to see conservation area status and the appropriate consent for any alterations. Should no authority consents can be provided your Ormesby conveyancing solicitor will recommend the alternatives such as seeking cover from an indemnity policy or requesting retrospective approval from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

I am on a tight deadline and need get fast conveyancing, what should we do?

A.

Primarily, buying faster is essential to is to use a proactive conveyancer. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
